Vince Russo’s The Brand Recap – RAW Criticism, Bayley’s ‘Horrible’ Promo, Kalisto Defeats Strowman? More!
Russo is joined on today’s show by his co-host Jeff Lane.
Russo says that this Monday’s episode of RAW was ‘God awful’. This type of show is the exact reason why he stopped watching wrestling altogether for several months, because there doesn’t appear to be any effort put into this show at all.
He says the opening segment featuring Chris Jericho, Dean Ambrose and The Miz was not good at all. That’s not the talent’s fault, that’s the writing team’s fault. The promo dragged on for an uncomfortable amount of time as the ring went through three set changes, and ultimately it ended with Ambrose attacking The Miz. This is the exact same thing that has happened on the last two RAWs.
He says that this show was so incredibly juvenile that it wasn’t written for children, it was written for barn yard animals.
Russo thought it was embarrassing that Maryse acted upset when Jericho put her on the list. He says if Jericho would have tried to put Sable on the list during the attitude era, Sable would have threatened to shove the list straight up his ass.
